My first time using HDR, I would say, a fairly good success. I think now I just need to focus more on angling and composition. I was so focused on getting HDR right that I felt rushed and didn’t do as well as I could have. What I like about HDR and photomatix in general is that it more true to the eye, and true to the experience of being there. You get a feeling of what it was like to be there by looking at these pictures. Many times, regular photographs don’t do it justice, but these do! I have so many more HDR photos that I want to share but I’ll leave it with these 🙂 I will definately use HDR in the future, and i’m so happy that i’ve discovered this technique of photographing. It adds to the creative pallet. Its hard to chose a favorite HDR because I don’t exactly have one that blows me away, so i’m kind of sad about that. I really wish I would have gotten more of the sky in the Hotel Meade Picture. I think it could have been a stunner if I would have thought more about composition. I like the church one, the lighting is stunning. It’s almost creepy. I mostly just used photomatix and adjusted the settings on there until I liked what I saw. I really enjoy the “sharpening” adjustment on photomatix. It does it just right.
